The particular propensity of Noto to be the scene of performing arts such as films but not only, has also been observed by Leonardo Sciascia, who believed that Noto was "the perfect setting for comedy." Sciascia claimed it:

The Baroque Noto risen from the ruins is the ideal setting to play. And in this suggestion, wandering the streets of Noto in the morning of rampant heraldic blue and gold, we think it was really a missed opportunity that a city like this, and in the eighteenth century, has perhaps had its most Goldoni Full-bodied and blood, more full of comedy and eroticism, and with heavy rain melancholy. Goldoni could not be born in Venice ... But Brancati was born not far from Noto, had blood in the play of our imagination which turns walking these streets; his play, his eighteenth century. From the ruins of the earthquake is kind of comedy this beautiful city. It will be our fault or flaw, but a city, the first meeting, the essence of it is configured under the species of literary genre. The cities that are novel. cities taking tragedy. The cities of comedy - as Noto. And this city comedy, music and so gorgeous, the need for an earthquake.
